Joy *The Carlos Cutie of Ilson* Report 14 Jan 2013 18:51

I have the 1911 image of James & Ruth. They say they've been married for 42 years with 13 babies born,only 1 of which has died. Believe that child is Ruth. Have traced possible marriages/families with the exception of George, Mary (aka Polly) & Lizzie.

Susan, Vincent & Maud are unmarried/living at home in 1911.
